Dashwoods Through the Snow

December 08, 2016 05:32PM
Blurb: Sir John Middleton throws a ball at Barton, to the tune of the Christmas carol “Jingle Bells.”

Dashwoods Through the Snow



Dashwoods through the snow
In a one-horse open sleigh,
Over the downs they go,
Laughing all the way;
Off to Barton Hall
For the Yuletide ball
Sir John has invi-ited
His neighbors, one and all.
O!

Refrain:
Barton Hall! Yuletide ball!
Dance your cares away.
Kick up your heels to jigs and reels.
Be joyful and be gay.

Affable Sir John
Surveys the ballroom.
Guests will stay till dawn
Dancing to his tune.
With a small regret
For one not at the fete
Elinor enjoys the ball
Without her Mr. F.
O!

Refrain:
Barton Hall! Yuletide ball!
Dance your cares away.
Kick up your heels to jigs and reels.
Be joyful and be gay.

Misses dressed in white
Like the glistening snow.
Choose your partner right
And lead her to the floor.
The colonel’s Marianne
Wants another man.
But he's a cad -- so very bad! --
A heartbreaker if he can.
O!

Refrain:
Barton Hall! Yuletide ball!
Dance your cares away.
Kick up your heels to jigs and reels.
Be joyful and be gay.

Too young to be out,
Margaret stays at home.
She doesn't sulk or pout;
There's too much to be done.
A sprig of holly there,
And pine boughs everywhere.
A sight to see: her sisters glee,
And the cottage full of cheer.
O!

Refrain:
Barton Hall! Yuletide ball!
Dance your cares away.
Kick up your heels to jigs and reels.
Be joyful and be gay.
(Repeat refrain as necessary.)
